Horse Country’s Commercial Hub

Welcome to Uptown Camden, SC

Equine Culture Oozes Out of Every Corner Here in Horse Country’s Commercial Hub.

You may know Dusty Bend strictly as that place where thousands gather for The Carolina Cup, a rite of spring in the Southeast. Surrounded by horse farms and steeplechase courses, this area of Uptown Camden offers the weary rider respite. A good meal and all the sundries you didn’t know you needed, with cute boutiques and a diverse offering of cuisines. Who knew? Now you do!

Rumor has it, Dusty Bend earned its name thanks to the almost constant cloud of dust that hung over the neighborhood, stirred up by the frequent traffic of automobiles and wagons (who may or may not have been headed around its curving main road to procure some shine during the Prohibition Era). Today, the road is paved, and there’s much more in store for your shopping and dining pleasure.

Whether you’re serious about tack, or ready to pick your way through some estate sale antiques before you grab a bite, Uptown’s array of shops and restaurants is both down home and next level. Be blown away by the giant supply of horse and rider necessities, along with some luxurious decor and accessories, in The Tack Room. Family-owned and operated for over 50 years, it’s a 30,000 square foot equine shopping wonderland featuring clothing, tack, gifts and much more.  Everyone goes to the Fox Den Ltd. for all their Cup tailgating needs, as this gift shop specializes in top notch equestrian decor and accessories. Just over the railroad tracks, AAA Pickers “puts the rust in rustic”. As they proudly say, if they don’t have it, you don’t need it. And a trip Uptown would not be complete without a visit to the “Goofy Girls” who run the eclectic Needful Things embroidery and gift shop.
